Return of the Fists

What started off as a few days break from painting yellow ended up being two months long. However finally after much delay I've started back on adding additional units to my pre-heresy Imperial Fists army. First on the list of things to do is building a ten astartes strong Volkite Tactical Support squad. So far I've completed three (including the Sergeant) with another two part painted on my desk.

Low Standards....

The sudden arrival of weather vaguely resembling a UK spring has curtailed the amount of time I have had to paint things. Unusually for me, I found I couldn't sit indoors during the evening while the sun was still up. No doubt this won't last and I'll soon be back to my usual, bunker dweller demeanour soon.

Normally two miniatures would take a couple of evenings work maximum, however these two have been knocking about for several weeks now. As previously mentioned, the fact that one is a Standard Bearer didn't exactly help.

Death Guard Cerberus Completed

If anyone was wondering why I hadn't posted much in the last week it was for a number of reasons, one of which was I was trying to complete the Death Guard Cerberus Heavy Tank Destroyer I'd built a few weeks back.

Having finally completed the weathering this evening, here's the finished model.

The limits of multi-tasking

As I've previously posted, I have a low boredom threshold and historically have suffered from painting army fatigue (better known as oh-good-grief-not-another-one syndrome). In order to make much progress I have to paint more than one thing at a time, else I grow bored of the latest paint-scheme and get distracted by the TV, latest video game or other stuff.

However there comes a time where painting multiple different armies at once becomes counter-productive. This happened to me last week.

Random update is.... Random

I'm not sure if it's the side-effects of too much chocolate but my latest batch of miniatures has taken a bit of a random turn.

Death Guard Contemptor Dreadnought

I find public holidays are great for getting things done and yesterday was no exception. In-between buying chocolate eggs for the Lord-of-Terror I found the time to complete a couple of projects that have been cluttering up my work-desk for the last few weeks.

Death Guard Praetor and Command

A quick update today. Due to a number of non-painting related issues I've hardly had anytime in the last week to put brush to model. I finally found enough time tonight to complete my Death Guard Praetor and another Command Squad Astartes.
